The Korea Football Association’s Football Love Sharing Foundation and the Korea Professional Footballers’ Association donated 10 million won each to former professional soccer players Shin Young-rok and Yoo Yeon-soo at the Jongno-gu Football Hall in Seoul on Thursday. The donation was made with a portion of the proceeds from the 2nd Players’ Association Charity Football Tournament held at Ajou University on Dec. 16 last year and a donation from the KFA’s Love Sharing Foundation. Two players who left the field due to unfortunate accidents will receive 10 million won each.
Shin Young-rok, who played for Jeju United, suffered a heart attack during a K League match in 2011 and recovered, but ended his career. Yoo Yeon-soo, who kept Jeju’s goal, was hit by a drunk driver while traveling with his teammates in 2022 and was paralyzed from the waist down and announced his retirement last November. The Professional Footballers’ Association and the Love Sharing Foundation explained the reason behind the donation, saying, “We want to help the two players rehabilitate and convey their dreams and hopes through football. “In particular, Yoo Yeon-soo was the first to donate 1 million won from his appearance on tvN’s entertainment program “You Quiz on the Block” on the 17th to the foundation.
